afternoon - 10.5 Parkway.  Hit the Parkway with Austin and Corey.  Then brought it home from school as the Jeep is in the shop for a little while.  Snowed on us again.  The novelty of that has worn off.  (Landreth black 324.55)

AM - 2.7 School.  Ran to school today as the Jeep will be in the shop for a little while.  It was 16 degrees and the snow had mad a layer of ice on everything - very slick.  (Stratus black 128.45)

afternoon - 10.9 Mall Trail w/ the boys, then hit 5xbarefoot striders - nice to be out barefooting again.  Then ran it home.  Decided against 2000's today because of the ear infection, now is not the time to make anything like that worse.  Was going to go home dogpound, but the road was torn up and I couldn't get through, so I had to cross country it around Sandberg's.  Got home and took the dog around the neighborhood.  (Stratus black 140.35)

AM - 2.7 School.  Another chilly run to school. (Cumulus white 445.25)

afternoon - 7 Z Loop.  Into Green Springs and around by Z's house and a grass loop to top it off with the boys.  Really tired at the beginning, but started to slowly snap out of it.  (Cumulus white 452.25)

Cumulus White Miles: 9.70

AM - 2.7 School.  Got up and ran to school again.  (Landreth 547.35)

afternoon - 10.75 Middleton Trails.  Went up into Middleton w/ the boys and hit a few trails across the top over to Green Springs and brought it back to school; ran home; took the dog around the block (measured it for the first time, actually .85 - always thought .75 - and the dog kept me well below 7:00 for the loop!).  (Landreth  558.1)

AM - 2.7 School.  I've decided most of the reason I hadn't been getting up before this week - since I have to right now - was simply lack of drive and laziness.  Can I overcome that and run a few each morning when I get the Jeep back - if I ever get it back?  (Stratus bee 417.25)

afternoon - 10.85 10x400hills.  Warmed up with the boys and dragged them over to some hills by the middle school that I will dub "Old Man" hills (because they were in a 55 and over community.  It was a nice little incline for 200 then a very gradual for the last 200.  It was a good hill for this type of workout.  I kind of tricked the boys and didn't tell them how many we were doing tell half way, but they did awesome.  Then ran it back to PVHS and to the shop to pick up the Jeep.  $700 later it is done.  Not too bad though in the grand scheme since I haven't had to make a payment on it in 7+ years.  (Stratus bee 428.1)

morning - 13.15 Painter's with the club - James, Austin, Nate and I running, Clyde and Logan biking.  Did a nice easy run on the 1/2 course.  Temps weren't too bad.  Glad we did it to remind me of how long the Bloomington loop section of the course is.  (Cumulus gold 143.45)

Week wasn't too bad.  Missed my 2000's because of the ear infection (which is still just hanging around), but miles were right where I wanted them and I even got up most of the week to run - since I wasn't getting to work any other way.

Goals for next week:  I am not really sure what to expect for the 1/2.  I am in pretty decent shape (maybe even better than I think), but after coming off last summer, anything else seems less than ideal for racing.  But I am going to push and make it a good start to the racing season.
